While many parents had initially showed concern that the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) schools might manipulate the grades according to their whims and fancies. The CBSE board has finally decided to go for a random verification across 200 schools identified by the board. This is to ensure that the exams as well as the process followed under Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) are reliable and unbiased.
This process will involve a nationwide analysis of the CCE, implemented in 2009.According to the reports, the CBSE Board will analyze the Summative Assessment-II and Formative Assessment data - used to assess the performance of the students. It will also analyze the results of 45 selected students from each of the 200 schools identified by the regional office. Each school will be required to send the data of a total of 15 students - five each in the top, average and lowest grade. The Board will analyze the subject-wise performance of the students in science, mathematics, Hindi, English and social science.
This is to ensure CCE are reliable and fair if it is going to issue the certificate even to those who sit for school-based exams.
